Question 9. Floor space
To answer this question the enumerator is to record in special boxes the size of useful and living floor space occupied by the household, including that used for other purposes, in square metres (in integer numbers without decimal digits).
In rounding a fractional floor space to the nearest integer the following rules are to be observed: if after the decimal sign follow five or more tenths, then one is to be added to the integer part; if less than five tenths, then the fractional part is to be discarded (e.g., numbers 23.50 and 23.51 are to be rounded to 24, but 23.49 to 23).
Useful floor space is to be recorded in integer numbers of square meters for each detached house, separate or shared (communal) flat or a room or flat in a hostel. It is determined as the sum of floor spaces of all habitable rooms (including spaces of attics, verandahs, terraces, which are heated and appropriate for habitation the year round) and back rooms (kitchens, halls, anterooms, indoor corridors, bath (shower) rooms, toilets, pantries or built-in closets).
It should be noted that detached bath houses, summer kitchens, sheds, pantries, and cellars are not to be included in the useful floor space of a detached house.
Useful floor space accounted for residents in hostels is measured as the sum of living space occupied by a household and its share in the back rooms space of the hostel.
The share of the back rooms space in a hostel per one person is calculated by dividing the whole space of backrooms of the hostel by the number of beds. E.g., the floor space of backrooms in a hostel is 500 sq. m. and the number of beds is 100. In this case, the share of the backroom space per one person is 5 sq. m.
Useful floor space (m2) does not include:
- attached and unheated spaces (terraces, verandahs, balconies, loggias, attics, mezzanines);
- detached summer kitchens, bathhouses, sheds, pavilions, etc.
If a household gives part of the space occupied in rent, the total space, both useful and living, including that rented, is to be recorded.
If a household rents a houseroom, also the floor space actually occupied, including both useful and living, is to be recorded.
"including floor space used for other purposes": the floor space is to be included, which is used for stores, cafes, barbershops, car repair shops, etc.
